Lawmakers to host Interfaith Iftar Dinner at Capitol

On Wednesday, Sens. Tom Ivester and John Sparks, along with Rep. Emily Virgin, will host the second Annual Oklahoma Legislative Interfaith Iftar Dinner at the state Capitol.

Iftar is the breaking of the fast at sunset during the month of Ramadan.

Sparks said Oklahoma’s Muslim community is diverse and dynamic, and includes numerous professionals, business owners and educators contributing to the state’s vitality.

The lawmakers have invited guests from Oklahoma’s major religious communities to continue the tradition of Interfaith Iftar at the state Capitol. The dinner will be held in the Second floor rotunda, from 7-9 p.m.
